This Casio men's watch is as accurate as it gets, synchronizing itself several times a day with the official US government time from an atomic transmitter. You never need to worry about setting for Daylight Savings or changing dates for leap years, either, as the calendar is preprogrammed until 2099. The watch has a stopwatch, daily alarm, countdown timer, and world time functionality for 29 time zones. An electroluminescent backlight illuminates the face at the touch of a button. The watch has a stainless steel case, metal bracelet, is water resistant to 165 feet (50 meters), and employs a quartz movement. It is covered by the manufacturer's 1-year warranty.

I've worn these Waveceptor watches for several years, but I've always had the sport band which was a little bit of a pain, because the band loop kept slipping so the band would stick out from my wrist. I tried cutting it shorter (still popped out), gluing the loop onto the band (would work for awhile) and finally just using a strip of tape to hold the loop in place. So I decided to try the silver metal band this time. And yes, it is an improvement, altho I still had to remove about 4-5 links to get it down to my wrist size ($10 at the jewelers). All that said, these are GREAT watches that automatically set themselves every night so you are always within a fraction of a second of the EXACT time. If you are the kind of person who likes that sort of precision, this is the watch for you.
2014 Update: This thing has lost its marbles. About two times a week at random it resets itself to the "initial" date 1 Jan 2005 (which was a Saturday, apparently). Then that night it resets itself to correct time. It is not the battery as the light is bright and strong. Time to get a new watch, probably NOT a waveceptor.
2012 Update: The battery lasted just over 3 years.
This watch has a nice display. The time digits are large and readable. however the other characters (day, month) are pretty small. It does not have many functions, but it sets itself to WWV and is always within 1/2 second of any stratum-1 reference I choose to compare to.
The display "crystal" is the most easily damaged I have seen in 45 years of wearing wristwatches. Within 1 month I had accidentally scratched it right over the tiny day display, yet it must have been a pretty mild incident or I would remember having done it. Will not buy again.
